The Lamoille Paffislini Company, .l.T.a Editors and Proprietors. MORRISVILLE AND HYDE PARK, OCTOBER 13th, 1887. The public debt was reduced $14, 247.969 in September. The cash in the treasury aggregates $478,896,012. As a result of the Prohibition agi tation in Tennessee, and the close vote at the recent election, the saloon men of Chattanooga have taken a vol untary pledge to refrain from doing business on Sunday. President Cleveland and wife are meeting with hearty receptions at all the places they visit in the west. There is nothing like American enthu siasm, and the orations tendered are not because it is Mr. Cleveland and his handsome wife, but because it is a visit from the President of the United States. Petitions are pouring in upon Gov. Oglesby of Illinois in behalf of the condemned anarchists, but there are no indications that he will yield to importunities. The anarchists had a fair trial in the lower courts and the wjjole proceedings were reviewed with sreat pains and labor in the highest court in the state. There is no rea son to suppose that the Governor will interpose. Gen. John C. Black, commissioner of pensions, in his annual report to the Secretary of the Interior, sug' gests, among other things, that the allowance of 82 per month to minor children be increased to $5 ; that the benefits of the act of June 16, 1880, be extended to those who subsequent to the date of its approval from an aggravation of their malady may be come helpless ; that the existing law that widows draw pension from the date of the death of their husbands, other conditions required by law being as at present ; that one person shall not dr-w more than one pension ; that the p-uent rate for total deafness be Increased to $30 per mont'i ; that the law be amended so the commissioner will be authorized to pay the pension to the wife of the pensioner, or a suit able person on behalf of the children, when the habits of the pensioner, show him to be unfit to receive or dis burse his pension. The report shows that there were at the close of the year 406,007 pensiorers. There were added during the year 59,194 new pensioners, and 2,707 were restored. During the same period 17,677 pen sioners were dropped. The amount paid was 873,463,581, an increase of 9,669,750. Manchester, N. H. ITS RAPID GROWTH WOXDERFCL j IMPROVEMENTS POLITICS, ETC. I Manchester, X. II., Oct., 18S7. Messrs. Editors: Perhaps you would like to see a little of this city and state through eyes familiar with it, but absent for the past year and therefore interested in noting changes. There is noticeable the same push and energy as of old, apparently in an in- creased degree. :ee. JNew Duuamgs going UD in various Quarters r West Manchester and McGregorville, which Jast suDurD is Having quite a Doom this 5nrtT ?i n ( J tht wnrlr i '"'''"' ' 'i' " ou tlio extension of the street railroad to that section across McGregor bridge. Within a year the street railroad has been extended on Elm Street to the in tersection of Baker Street south, and up Park Street to Ilallville, or. as they now call it, East Manchester. These exten sions give the city a fine system of rail ways, oeing all under one control, and a single fare of five cents good over the main line and any of the branches. The Amoskeag Manufacturing Co., has its new mill, The Jefferson, com pleted and fully occcupied, principally for carding and spinning. Though there are over 1,000 looms in it, the company is still unable to manufacture sufficient vain for its use and a portion of its looms have been idle for the past week on that account. The Manchester Mills are as busy as usual and are matting some repairs among them a new smoke stack. Not withstanding the great water power here, all the mills are provided with auxiliary steam power, and the limit has been nearly reached of the water supply of the canal and if much additional power is required it must be supplied by steam until some one can make wheels which will utilize a greater percentage of water used. The water supply this year has been very abundant, rains having been fre quent ana neavy, ana tne country snows a marked contrast in its fresh and green appearance to former years when the drouth was severe. The excitement is general over the railroad question, and the feeling of the people pretty fairly shown by the votes or tneir rtepresentatives lor the llazen bill, which vote was, ayes, 20, and navs. 8. Manchester is evidently in favor of tne .Boston x Maine. The West Manchester Congregational church is being extensively repaired and its seating capacity will be nearly aouDiea. ui wis church, itev. E. C Crane is pastor. Political fires always burn fiercelv in the Granite State, and the premonitory rumblings of the great contest of 1888 are already heard and the opinion is freely expressed that the Reverend Con gressman from this district will then be elected to stay at home. While narties are divided on the railroad question, the Republicans are earnest and united and only hope the best candidates may be nominated and they will receive their united support. There is an. apparent growing aisanection in tne .Democratic ranks, especially among the voters from the lireeu Isle," ami tiie converts make food workers, too. How any citizen of lanchester, which, substantially, lives off its manufacturers can be a free trade Democrat is more than I can see. Yet great is the mystery of political action particularly among those most vitally interested, i. e., laborers, and on the questions of protection or free trade. The liquor traffic holds its own here as it is pretty sure to do in a citv so largely peopled with those of foreign'birth ; and while the saloons prosper, their patrons grumDie aoout " nam times " and low wages. The judge of the police court told me the other day that ninety per cent of the criminal cases brought before him came there on account of intemper ance, it seems to me mat every minis ter, every church, and every good citizen should endeavor to create a public sen timent that will crush out this traffic, and to do this every one should bid the others God speed in any effort, even if not just in the line of their view of what is the best way ; one thing is sure, the rum power win not be overthrown in any other way in such places as this. Yours, S Rev. Dr. Alden was sustained at the close of Friday's all-day debate m the American Board at Springfield, and the present officers and prudential commit tee were re-elected. This is a victory for the conservative win. Rev. Dr. Richard Salter Storrs of Brooklyn, the foremost of pulpit orators in the Congre gational church, was chosen president by the largest vote ever called forth in the history of the Board; and in an eloquent speech last evening he reserved his decision on the matter until after some weeks' consideration. Vermont Bible Society. The 7oth annual meeting of the Vermont Bible society will be held at Barre, Wednes day, Oct. 19, with a meeting of the direc tors at 2 P. M. The business meeting of the society to hear reports and elect officers will be held at 7.30 P. M., when an address will be delivered by Itev. Jlomer Eaton, D. D. , of Burlington. 1 Reunion of the Eleventh Vt. Vols. The reunion of the 1st Art. lltli Vt. Vols, at Burlington was a very successful affair and passed off to the satisfaction of all the survivors pres ent. A few were on hand on the eve ning of Sept 27, but the most of them came on the trains arriving about noon of the 28th, and soon the hearty wel come of comrades, many of whom had not seen each. other since their muster out, could be seen and heard on all sides, each one adding some charac teristic anecdote with his greeting, thus reviving old memories, whicn are so pleasing a part of all such gather ings, and still it has its vein of sad ness as well as joy, as in memory the faces of those gone to their final muster-out amid the flame of battle, the horrors of the prison pen or the "hope deferred which maketh the heart sick," of the hospital, or later amid the home scenes and pleasures since the war closed. Notwithstanding this somber lining the clouds were golden on those days, so made by the wofds of cheer heard on all sides. The business meeting took place at 3.30 p. m., in the parlors of the Van Ness House as more comfortable than the City Hall, and was called to order by Maj. Safford, who was chosen tem porary cha'rman, and Capt. Chase temporary secretary. A committee of one from each county, with Capt. Austin, of Co. A as chairman, was appointed to nominate officers for a permanent organization and reported a3 follows : President, Gen. James M. Warner, Albany, N. Y. ; Vice Presi dents, Col. A. F. Walker, "Washing ton, D. C, Maj. D. J. Safford, Mor risville ; Treasurer, Capt. O. II. Aus tin, Barton Landing ; Secretary, II. C. II. Lewis, Bellows Falls; Chap lain, Rev. Arthur Little, D. D., and were unanimously elected. After a full and free discussion in which all parts of the State were represented, it was unanimously voted that the next reunion should be at Burlington, to commence September 19, 1888, the annivers ry of the battle of "Winches ter. A committee consisting of Capts. H. R. Chase and O. H. Austin and Sergt. A. S. Fleury were appointed to draft a constitution and by-laws to be presented to the next meeting. An executive committee of five and an auxiliary committee of one from each company, and an additional member from each county in the State which raised no company for the regi ment, of which committee D. J. Saf ford is chairman, completed the list of officers. At 7.15 p. m. the line was formed, and headed b' Sherman'3 Military Band, proceeded to the depot to meet Gen, Warmer and Col. "vYa'ke, who were escorted to head-quarte.s, and shortly after the society with its in vited guests proceeded to the City Hall, wuere, after the old camp calls had bee soarded by the band. Gen. Warner was 'ntioducecl to the society as its first president. On rising to come forward he was greeted with ap plause, and on taking the chair was given three rousing cheers and a tiger. Col. Walker was also greeted with en thusiastic applause, and "the boys"' were liberal with applause to all their old officers and also to the Governor, who was present and welcomed them in behalf of the State. Besides the remarks of Gov. Ormsbee, speeches were made by Col. Walker, Capt. Eldridge. Cap. Austin, Capt. Chase, P. R. Kendall, Esq., who was a mem ber of Co. L, and Maj. Safford, and brief remarks were also maae by Gen. "Warner- Capt. Woodbury conducted the camp-fire by request of Gen. Warner, and then,-as-at-alb times, O nut''" ry - a- of the reunion. Excellent music was furnished by Sherman's Band and the singing was led by a male quartette under the leadership of Capt. Hinds, to whom, as well as to the railroads, the thanks of the society were ex tended. Many letters of regard were received, which, for lack of time, were left unread, but placed in the hands of the printer. Thursday morning many of the comrades took carriage rides about the city, the citizens having generous ly provided carriages for that purpose. The remainder of the da was passed principally in gathering in knots and talking over the incidents of the war and what had passed since, each de parting train thinning the number un til those of the early evening took the last or them Irom their first reunion but, as they unanimously declared by no means their last. Among those present there was a nolicable number who lacked an arm or a leg, and many others who were severely wounded. Conspicu ous among tnose maimed veteran was S. W. Hind3, of Hyde Park, who lost both hands while on picket tront ot Petersburg, but who, to the lasting disgrace of our present reform administration, was removed from the little post-office at North Hyde Park to make way tor an able bodied Mug wump. ii every survivor qr the regiment will seni his name, company and present post-office address to D. J Safford, Morrisville, Vt.. or to II. C II. Lewis, Secretary, at Bellows Falls Vt., and add the name and address of every surviving officer and man of the icgiuieub ue can give, it will aid ma terially in the preparation of the ros ter or that regiment. Please do this and also make preparations to attend the next reunion Sept. 19, 1888. Veteran.

If it is a subject of as much inter est to others of New England as it, was of surprise to me, as fresh from that land alike of happy associations and climatic extremes, I was im pressed with the fullness of this one of nature's blessings, I will not be blamed for selecting it as a subject upon which to write. Participating with South Carolina and Georgia in the rays of an almost tropical sun, and enjoying with Mas sachusetts and New Jersey that gold en mean between a torrid and a frigid temperature, while for depth of snow and degree of cold the elevated re gions in and around the Sierras are eclipsed by no inhabited country, Cal- ifornia can surely oe to no aimcuicy in proving its climatic pre-eminence. Owing to the several warm oceanic currents which wash its shores, the winters on the coast and in those parts of the interior not effected by elevation, are much warmer and the summers much cooler than on the at lantic coast in corresponding latitudes. The principal one of these currents, the Kurosivo or North Pacific current, a stream six hundred miles wide with an uuvarying ten perature of fifty de grees, imparts nearly its own temper ature of fifty degrees, to the so called trade winds, which for seven months in the year continue to move from sea to land over its surface, supplying to the coast regions, and in a greater or less degree to every part of the State, a fresh, salutary atmosphere of such a temperature as greatly to miti gate the heat of summer and the cold of winter, and giving to some pirts of the coast a more equable tempera ature than can be found in any other part of the globe. In the city of San Francisso the average temperature for the month of July is 57 degrees and for January 40 degrees, making a dif ference of only eight degrees betweea the means of the warmest and cold est months ; whereas in London, prob ably the most equable city in Europe, between the means of the same months there is a difference of 25 de grees, and in New York 45. As the distance is increased north or south from San Francisco the seasons be come gradually, but sligutly, more marked. Los Angeles, in the same latitude as Wilmington, South Caro lina, has for July a mean temperature of 75 degrees, and for January 52 de grees. Eureka, with the latitude of New York City, is very seldom visit ed by snow, and frost never appears, except, perhaps, an occasional n'ght frost. Of that portion of the State included in the Valley of the Sacra mento and San Joaquin rivers, climat icaljy, not as much can be said. The region, beins by the interposition of the coast ranges, deprived to a great extent of the modifying influences of the sea breezes, has an intense sum mer heat, even in the northern por tion. Ihere, however, as elsewhere throughout the State, the nights are always cool, the atmosphere is alwaj's balmv and invigorating and that op pressive weariness and feeling of ex haustion bo generally experiencd during the warm months of other countries is entirely unknown. To these causes, chiefly, i3 due the great er physical endurance of man and beast. In this climate people are ca pable of greater and longer continued mental and physical exertion than in that of the East, and if my rule of comparison be not wrong, instances of longevity are much more common A good constitution is enduring, but there is such variety to the cli mate or tne state tbat invalids com ing here for relief - must- with, great which is best adapted to their partic ular ailment. For invalids suffering from diseases of the respiratory or gans, to come to San Francisco would be little less than suicide. On the coast, and generally throughout the northern part of the State, the at mosphere is too heavy, too crude, and contains too much moisture for inva lids of this class. They will find the best climate in the southern part of tne state, not too near the coast, and if possible in an elevation of two or three thousand feet. In nearly the whole of that part of the State south of San Jose there is not sufficient rain fall for agricultural purposes, render ing irrigation necessary. With regard to the relative degree of humidity, the year is divided into two seasons, the dry and the wet. mi i . ine ary season comprises tne six months from May to October, inclu sive. DuriDg this season rain seldom falls anywhere in the State, except in the mountainous districts of the nor them portion, and there only during the first and toward the last of the season. And throughout the Slate, except on the western slopes of the coast hills, where there is much fos and dew, the moisture supplied by the winter rains, though it is well reserved by the deep soil, is not sufficient for the support of vegetable growth long er than to the latter part of June; therefore, during the remainder of this season, the State, were it not for the orchards, vineyards and fields of ripening grain, would present a bar ren and dreary appearance. The wet season begins with November, but generally there are only slight show ers Deiore uecemoer. A his season is much the pleasantest half of the year h rom its being called the wet season the inference i3 sometimes drawn that it has little or no sunshine, or at least that wet weather is the rule ; but this is by no means tbe case. Proportion ately this season has no more rainy days than a New England summer, and in a greater part of the State not as many. A lew days or ram are fol lowed by weeks of as pleasant weath er as can easily be conceived. The periodical sea breeze, so beneficial dur ing the warm season, subsides at the beginning of this and the rain brings a relief from the dust, which toward the last of the dry season becomes quite troublesome. A new impetus is given to all business. Since harvesting, work on the farms has been suspend ed, but now the plowing and seeding seasen commences, ana soon the brown stubble will give place to the growing grain, and nature, awaking from its summer lethergv, will again, by unfurling its banner of leaves and blossoms proclaim the perpetuity of life It is not going beyond the realms of truth to say that from the burning sand desert of the South to the line of perpetual snow in the Sierras, and from the coast, with its uninterrupted suPPto' of moisture, to the continually dry interior basins, there is included a climatic counterpart of nearly every portion of the inhabited globe. It is this fact that makes the climatology of California so difficult of compre hension to those unacquainted, by per sonal observation, with the different portions of the State. This is the reason so many of the written descrip tions are more misleading and confus ing than instructive. Writers often take the climatic phenomena of a part for those of the whole. The climate of San Francisco, Los Angeles, or some ol.hpr ppnt.pr nf travpl is fre quently taken as an example of the entire State. Nothing can tend more to produce a misconception. Los An geles has a climate entirely peculiar to itself ; nowhere in the State is there found anything similar. While Oak land, only across the bay from San Francisco, has a climate as different from that city as the climate of Bos ton i3 different from that of St. Lou is. It is only by the use of a map based upon the mal-observations of the different localities that a proper delineation and exposition of the cli mate of tbe State can be given. To one desirous of drawing favora ble attention to the Stale, the great and enduring wealth of the soil would offer a happy theme. For what so much assures the rapid growth and permanent greatness of a State as in exhaustable productiveness of soil coupled with a conducive climate? Than thpsp. nothinff more is wanting for the foundation of a State destined - cj . to be eaual to the greatest. Ihe best of men for these the world will furnish and the best of human virtues these will serve to burnish. What with the glitter of persuasive gold that draws the tide of life, the state s resources to unfold, and what with a never tail ing soil that pays the honest price of toil, it were indeed a miracle it here men should decay and wealth should accumulate.
